Cartier Tank Obus - back from the spa

Aug 24, 2020,08:39 AM

With its square case and bullet-shaped lugs, it’s not your average Tank. But every element of the watch, from the lugs to the guilloche dial, was crafted with a care and attention that one can only say is Cartier. The Tank Obus is known for its unusual shape. Unlike other watches in the Tank line, the Obus is square, not the rectangular shape that many collectors have come to expect. But the most distinctive element of this watch is the shape of the lugs, which look nothing more like tiny bullets affixed to the ends of the case.

and I must add that I like this version with the more plain dial, actually better than the one with the Arabic minutes in the center of the dial. GEO

Quality of polishing service

How good would you say the polishing service from Cartier is? I want to get some of the deeper scratches out of my Tortue but I'm hesitant to send it in because I'm afraid they might over-polish to the point of losing the case shape.

If the damage to your Tortue is significant,

I would also be concerned. It is best not to hope for a miracle from Cartier service if the case has significant issues. I’ve been very happy with their service, but my watches have only had cosmetic issues.
